Hip-Hop Heavyweights Release ‘Don’t Shoot’ in Mike Brown Tribute

In response to the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, Compton rapper, the Game, rounded up a  force of  10 rappers and three R&B singers for the track  “Don’t Shoot.” The song features Diddy, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and R&B group TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank). 

“The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this,” the Game explained in an interview with  Rolling Stone magazine. “I am a black man with kids of my own that I love more than anything, and I cannot fathom a horrific tragedy like Michael Brown’s happening to them. This possibility has shaken me to my core. That is why this song must be made and why it was so easy for so many of my friends to come together and unite against the injustice.”
